Yoga and the Enteric Nervous System

In the 19th century it was a major scientific breakthrough in understanding the interaction of the nervous system with the digestive system and therefore the so-called enteric nervous system discovery happened. Dr. Ananda Balayogi Bhavanani is one of the eminent Yoga acharya from the Indian Yoga Landscape who has conducted research to study the effects of yoga therapy on functional dyspepsia and the use of adjuvant yoga therapy to treat the condition's symptoms. According to the findings a month-long yoga therapy intervention significantly reduced the patients' symptoms.

The connection between gastrointestinal microbiota and the brain has been described in ancient Indian texts through Yoga and Ayurveda and is now well established by different researches. In ancient Indian culture, food was revered not only as sustenance but also as a form of medicine (Āhāra hi Auṣadhi). This perspective highlights the profound understanding of the gut-brain axis and the impact of diet on health.

Today, amidst the prevalence of gastrointestinal disorders exacerbated by stressful lifestyles, understanding the bi-directional gut-brain axis through yoga therapy can be transformative. Yogacharya Dr. Ananda Balayogi Bhavanani's program offers an opportunity to delve into these teachings, equipping yoga instructors (or practitioners) with knowledge and practices to enhance their yoga chikitsa (yoga therapy) and understand how yoga plays an important role in reviving gut -brain axis.
